Ada Limón is the author of six volumes of poetry including The Carrying, which received the National Book Critics Circle Award; she hosts the critically-acclaimed poetry podcast, The Slowdown. Ocean Vuong was praised by The New York Times as "a mightily gifted observer” in his best-selling novel, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous, preceded by the award-winning debut collection Night Sky with Exit Wounds. This two-hour seminar will examine key poems from each collection to build our knowledge of these influential voices. Beasley, a noted local writer and teacher who has shared the stage with both poets, will guide readers through Limón and Vuong’s craft choices in relation to their earlier work. Advance familiarity with The Hurting Kind and Time Is a Mother is recommended but not required; all levels of expertise are welcome. One Sunday: June 26 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET Online
